"There is flagrant violation of the law and environment standards and illegal activities being carried on. We hereby restrain carrying on of any commercial activity by construction of sheds or even industrial activity, including sale and purchase of marble, liquor and gas godowns in the village Sikandrapur Ghosi (in the Aravalli hill region) till the next date of hearing.
"We further direct that the forest areas in all three villages shall be duly protected and maintained and no non-forest activity would be permitted to carry on in those villages," it said.
The bench, also comprising judicial member justice P Jyothimani and expert members GK Pandey, DK Agarwal and AR Yousuf, posted the case for further hearing on February 7.
The tribunal also clubbed with this case a similar plea before it alleging environmental pollution and unauthorised use of forest area for non-forest activities in the Aravalli hills region.
"Both of them relate to the pollution of the environment, unauthorised use of forest area for non forest activities and carrying on mining activity. Though they relate to different villages in districts Faridabad and Gurgaon in Haryana but they all pertain to Aravali hills.
Thus, we direct both these matters to be heard together," the bench said.
